Stop The Madness!!! No More Taxes For Internet Sellers

This will affect ALL of us who sell online. 

"On July 1, a bill was introduced in the United States House of Representatives that would impose complex sales tax collecting requirements on internet retailers and entrepreneurs, including eBay sellers. If passed, HR 5660, the so-called, "Main Street Fairness Act," would require small online retailers to comply with varying and regularly changing sales tax rules and rates for thousands of tax jurisdictions, and to collect and remit sales taxes from each customer. This new sales tax scheme would be extremely burdensome and costly to small online retailers like you who have set up shop on the internet. A similar bill is expected to be introduced in the Senate as well."

Please sign the petition below. Higher taxes mean higher costs for sellers and consumers.
Tell congress to STOP THE MADNESS!!
